The Library does not accept books or magazines that:

ii. Are missing pieces if there is more than one CD or DVD in the set


A donated item, if accepted by the library, may not be selected for the collection if, for instance, it does not meet collection guidelines, is outdated or a duplicate, or because the library does not have sufficient space to accommodate it.


The Library does not provide evaluation of gifts for tax receipts or other purposes. If a donor wishes an evaluation, it will be done at his or her expense.
